About me

Photography is a dream job for me!  I've loved all things creative for as long as I can remember.  I'd taken photography classes here and there but it wasn't until after we brought our son home in 2004 that I became a student of the art, reading everything I could get my hands on and talking to anyone who would talk to me about it.

After enjoying a successful 13 year career in Marketing for a major publishing company, I found myself wanting to take on the role of the creative vendors I was hiring.  I took the leap and left the corporate world to pursue some exciting design opportunities.  It was then that photography and documenting my own child's life through pictures became an addiction, a passion that I love to share with others.

As a Mom of two, I know how quickly time passes and how those memories we think we'll remember forever quickly fade over time.  Being behind the camera capturing moments of your lives, then coming home and creating pieces of art that will tell your story for generations to come has been such an incredible experience.  Every client, every session is different and unique so this job never grows old!

My most important job, however, is right here at home.  I'm a wife to an amazingly supportive husband (I should write that twice!), and an adoptive mom to two beautiful kids, Brendan (7) and Kyra (3), who keep me running but I wouldn't change a thing.  I'm also a daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, friend and neighbor, not always in that order but all major roles that make my life feel complete.

I AM SAM { HUDSON VALLEY COMMERCIAL PHOTOGRAPHER }

When Sam of I AM SAM YOGA first contacted me about booking a session for photos to use on her website, I was very excited!  Not only because I was looking to do more commercial work but also because yoga is such a beautiful art.  Yes, it is an art and you know I am all over anything creative!  When I met Sam for the first time, she greeted me with a big hug that felt like an old friend.  I knew right away this was going to be a special session, she was excited and open to anything.  I always love working with clients like that because there’s a back and forth that builds throughout the session and it takes things to a completely new level very quickly.  Of course it doesn’t hurt when you have a beautiful model!  After a good hour and a half of climbing, slipping on rocks, and being places we really shouldn’t have been (all in bare feet, thank goodness for baby wipes!), Sam and I were ready to keep going. Unfortunately, the sun was refusing to give us any more time no matter how hard we asked.  Part of me wanted to go all Strobist and drive the van down because I think headlights would’ve made for some really incredibly shots but we were down at the waterfront and it wasn’t feasible at the time.  In the end, we caught lots of great stuff for her to choose from.  And it was a lot of fun!
